Was wondering which apps/widgets/shortcuts YOU think are essential to have on your homescreen?

I've been tinkering around trying to customize my EVO since I got it 4 days ago and I can't figure out what I want on my homescreen (except for contacts, messages, phone, and gmail). So I thought I'd ask to see what you guys have and/or think are essential to have on your homescreen for quick access.

The widgets I have on my homescreens:

-Calendar and Friends widget from LauncherPro+
-2 picture frame widgets

On my Lockscreen:

-WeatherBug Elite
-Agenda Widget


I've got:

Camera, Gallery, My files, QQ, Internet, Skype, Maps, Market, Music player, Google talk, Calendar, Thinkfree Office, Settings, Phone, Contacts, Messaging, Applications and the Active Applications widget.

I use LauncherPro, which allows you to have 7 home screens. I keep bare minimum on the main/center screen, and put the lesser apps on the side screens. And the even lesser ones are just relegated to the app drawer.

Main home screen: Beautiful Home Weather, Smooth Calendar.
Other home screens: Audio Manager, Pro Player, Easy Switch, Remember the Milk lists.
Launcher Pro dock: Market, Maps, RealCalc, ebook reader du jour, K9, browser, Gmail, Phone, People, Navigation, Voice Search, B-folders, aCar. Voice recorder and flashlight are mapped to LP gestures.
One screen is devoted to App Organizer folders with my remaining apps.
Using ADW for the moment with 5 dock slots (contacts, IM, apps, market, and phone)
On the actual screen is Facebook, Yahoo Messenger, Angry Birds, and my audio/task managers.

It would be easier to take pictures of the screens. I've got a lot on each one, and I have seven, counting the lock screen. One is blank, just because I enjoy my background!
